“I was the first roastee sixteen years ago,” Kellar said. “The Elks Lodge and Samuel Dixon approached me about doing it again this year since it’s been a while.”
“I feel very strongly about the Samuel Dixon Centers and the great work they do,” he added, noting that he has supported many of the organization’s fundraisers over the years, including the Samuel Dixon Annual Rubber Ducky Festival.
“The four seemed way too anxious to be involved,” Kellar said.
But Kellar remained good humored about the impending Roast, which he assured will be a fun event.
“I like to see people laugh,” Kellar added. “Whenever I put a smile on someone’s face, that’s never a bad thing.”
